Day 3: Homemade Eggnog


'Tis the season for tasty drinks and holiday cheer. And no seasonal drink gives you both quite like eggnog. You can buy it at the store, of course, but making it from scratch is so easy...not to mention delicious! The recipe we used can be found here on Allrecipes.com. We made ours without alcohol so the kids could enjoy it as well, but feel free to add a splash of "something festive" to yours if you'd like!

What You Need:
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 quart milk
  • 1/3 pint heavy whipping cream
  • a pinch of ground nutmeg
  • a pinch of salt

First, beat your eggs then mix in the condensed milk, vanilla, milk, and salt. In a separate bowl beat your whipping cream until soft peaks form. Then fold it into your egg/milk mixture. Sprinkle with the nutmeg, serve, and feel merry!
Pin It!
